Greetings All,

This isn't really immigration related, but I figured Visa Journey was a good place to start. I didn't see a FAQ or anything. . .

My wife has been in the U.S. since last May and has her green card. We'd like for her parents to come visit next Summer for about two months. Her parents are both retired and in China.

I've heard differing processes and procedures from different people. Does anyone know what process we have to go through to get my in-laws visas to visit?

the best site for visitors visa is the U. S. Embassy in Manila


click on the Consular and Visa section, then on non-immigrant visa information, then visa classification, than visitor (B1/B20

Easy to understand and is even numbered in steps to follow and includes what NOT to do

Good Luck
